Brandon PD. 1992. The determinants of market child care use among female-headed households. Madison, WI: University of Wisconsin, Institute for Research on Poverty, 28 pp. (Institute for Research on Poverty discussion paper; no. 985-92)

Annotation: This study tests whether the child care choices of female-headed households differ because the mechanisms leading to female-headship status are distinct, thereby differentially conditioning the set of child care choices and mothers' abilities to pay. The variables examined include marital status; economic constraints; kin networks; and work history. Data are drawn from the National Longitudinal Study of the High School Class of 1972 (NLS'72), in particular its fifth follow-up survey, conducted in 1986.

Annotation: This paper describes Project ACCESS which was designed to examine access to follow-up and early intervention services for infants at-risk when they leave newborn intensive care units (NICUs).
